her accident on securing the worlder, john lewis on excise tax when it comes to the telephones. so i have a long list, a long career and history of working with both sides of the aisle because i believe at the end of the day if we're going to solve the problems facing this nation, facing the state of nevada -- high unemployment, high foreclosures, businesses going bankrupt -- if you're going to solve those problems, republicans and democrats are going to have to come together to solve those problems. >> moderator: congressman berkeley, you have a minute. berkeley: i think it's important we do work together, and on many issues we co. do. one of the things i recall working across party lines was for the elimination of the estate tax. i worked with mr. brady who sits on the ways and means committee with me. that's also crossing party lines and breaking with my own party to make sure that we do what i think is right for the american people. um, b one of the issues that's very important that we talk about a lot is jobs and making sure that we provide an environment where we can create goo
. not really. >> host: john and mean joins on the independent line. good morning, john. >> caller: good morning. how are you? >> host: are you watching tomorrow night? >> caller: i will be watching but i'm a student of human nature, really. that's all. politicians will always be politicians so i am not a fanatic on either side. i think i'm just watching to see how it goes. promises don't mean nothing because without the senate or the congress they don't mean nothing. if they are not backed up they don't mean nothing. but it's nice to watch and see what they will promise. they will probably promise anything. like i said, i am from an old school of politics. i was brought up in new york at the tail end of the hall if you know what that was. anyway, i've just been watching out of curiosity on how they present themselves more and more out of anything else. i don't have another particular party or anything like that. thank you. >> host: paul chollet vince and hedge phill wv on the republican line. good morning, paul. >> caller: good morning. what i am concerned about is the moderator. you know, duri
you do? >> that's a great question. i think that for me the experience i have, i supported john mccain and his a great man and a true american hero. [inaudible] >> seriously, seriously. >> it was because of you. president obama wins the election in a month after he gets sworn in, he comes to florida to talk about the recovery act, and the stimulus. the office invited me to greet them in fort myers and i did so and introduced them. as a governor, i saw our budget into what was happening to our economy. it was on a cliff and i was very delighted frankly as a governor to have the balanced budget or go to jail that we were going to get assistance. a lot of the sort of taxpayer dollars are going to come back to florida and help us out of this thing and help our teachers, police, firefighters be able to stay on the job. but when i did that and embrace the president at that time, maybe the president of the united states. and the way my mother and father raised by three sisters and myself was that you respect others, does she do unto others, particularly, by the way, if that person happens
. wait for the mic. [inaudible] >> is it on? a great press conference. i am john, president of the foundation west virginia. also a person long-term recovery and i've been clean and sober for over 30 years. [applause] i got clean when i was 23 in the marine corps so i have seen a lot of action in recovery over 30 years but in virginia specifically not all states are equal. we still fight civil rights in virginia and we have a state where they want to go backward it appears. now the federal government is doing a great job intervening in the delivery of recovery support services, meaning those federal dollars the come from virginia. to me it would make sense to make them spend a small portion on recovery support services to include housing. housing is a critical missing element in recovery so i guess my thought process to samhsa and somehow force the state to discriminate against recovery like they do in virginia and spend some of those dollars on the authentic recovery and support service. that really is the nature of my thought process. by doing so we could really reduce the
that this is the most effective ad, and john of abc said that got four pinocchios, so the response as well, we are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. and what he means by that, i mean, politicians in both parties stretch the truth if they feel it will give them a political advantage. and if that's their most effective ad, it doesn't matter what a bunch of, you know, nick take a journalist might say about it because that add news people and has an impact. i have seen both obama and romney suddenly tweaked or change language, or drop language that were called out by fact checkers because ultimately there was a decision that are that it doesn't really mean that much to us if we fix this. it will get less greece if we just tweak it a bit or change it on the margins. but the key thing that moves voters such as he apologizes for america, or obama with a ridiculous thing about the savings from the wars, which he says, and the same breath criticizes george w. bush for running wars on the credit card, he will say those like almost 1 cents after another without any since he is c
with that once you have? how do you, as john mentioned earlier, how do you make that actionable for not only industry, but for the general public? so where is the why should i care in there? dazzler tried to do through this education campaign, he developed a why you should be concerned and why you should take the necessary steps to protect yourself. don't expect someone else to protect you. the focus there and a cyber domain is protecting yourself. >> let me add to that, because i think most people in america, probably not industry but i think the average american would be shocked to know that dhs is responsible for governments they could have the authority and responsibly to protect dot gov. .mil. what government agency has responsibility to protect dot com. matters not a government -- if a foreign government dropped a bomb on some company headquarters here, the nazis would probably scramble planes and the present would be on the phone with some had a state somewhere. but when the same company gets hacked and loses two terabytes of data, $1 billion worth of r&d to continue ta
for re-election, particularly the house republican leadership to be really specific about it, can john boehner in the time he's running for re-election as leader say i'm going to make a deal with barack obama that includes big tax increases? >> that's a good question. so i was -- i was informed recently of a conversation that a leading player on taxes who, you know, is now on k street, but whose background is on the democratic side, and a counterpart of his on the republican side. in the conversation, the republican said the democrats have to cave on taxes because john boehner can't move his caucus before january 1st, but the president can roll over before january 1st once he is re-elected so that is what has to happen. to us, it's a prescription to never get anywhere. the hope is that after the election, the discussion proceeds in such a fashion that there can be agreement in december, but i think the very point you mentioned about boehner is one of the reasons why i believe it is more likely that we will get a deal in january than in december for precisely the point you just mentione
of voters that are colleges john became group into bills and eight. that is a very quick run through some of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to step back, catch my breath and just say why is this. why is this going on? why does obama have the lead he does? why is from the having difficulty, and what many people argue should be the core limping along economy and a president that has done so much as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of voters because even though many have felt the economy come back from cataclysmic tester it didn't exactly turn into a picture of health and voters tend to be unforgiving on things like that. what's going on? the first factor is the economy. it's not great now, but it's better than it used to be and i think we are beginning to get the sense that voters are getting credit for how much things have improved relative to a disastrous economic situation in the first year. voters can remember a few years back there some political
and the position of folks like lindsey graham or john mccain than there is between romney and obama. both romney and obama believe in supporting the opposition. the administration has provided nonlethal and humanitarian assistance, it's also worked with our allies who are providing all sorts of support to the opposition which, by the way, is what mitt romney said he would do in working with countries like qatar, turkey and saudi arabia and other ways. but i think this administration has also recognized that the most important thing we can do is try to create a unified political opposition so that when the assad regime fall, we'll have as smooth a transition as possible. rushing in with military options without a clear exit strategy which, by the way, mitt romney said on "60 minutes" would be the way he would think about military affairs, the president understands we have to be cautious about it. because there are many ways in which we could make the situation worse rather than better, and our first obligation is to try and get the political and diplomatic context right so you can have as smooth
's an example that john deere company embarked upon a pilot project in africa were developed a suite of form tools that could be attached to a very small tractor. then the company worked to expand the availability of capital to the farmers are there so they could maintain and develop their own businesses. the result is that a good investment for john deere, and a greater opportunity are african farmers who are now able to grow more crops, and provide far more plentiful lives of their own. for american foreign aid to become more effective, it's got to embrace the principles that you see in these global initiatives. the power of partnerships, access to the transformative nature of free enterprise, and the leverage of the abundant resources that can come from the private sector. now i believe that there are three quite legitimate objects of our foreign aid in this country. first of course is to address the humanitarian needs. such as the case with a far, which is given medical treatment to millions suffering from hiv and aids. second is to foster a substantial united states strategic interest,
john rutledge both from south carolina. my middle name as rutledge. it is a dishonor to our ancestors to find out where we are in missouri right now. we deserve better leadership, and i plan to give it. >> thank you. jim higgins. >> the libertarian party has returned 40-years-old now last year. and i have been a libertarian for almost that amount of time. i first discovered the libertarian ideas and nearly 70 and i've been active in the party ever since then. in misery we got a worked petition to get the ballett for the missouri party in 92, and we have had access ever since then. we've made progress, steady progress, slows the progress, not as much as we had hoped, but people are starting to listen to our ideas. so we have a platform -- we are when hundred% across-the-board freedom for the inevitable. we believe in civil liberties and we shouldn't try to pursue. we are strong believers in the free-market the balance between the supply and demand and price is the best way to allocate the most resources to the most people. it is a hard and fast rule and politicians constantly try to im
that problem really starts. and the research, so johns hopkins, for example, bob and many lectures and other colleagues have done quite a bit of research that shows exactly how we can track, notice and track these indicators. the abcs, attendance, behavior, course completion and course progress, those are the three things that you look at to find out if a kid is going to drop out. and we can do this as early as middle school. if one of those indicators is off track by the time a kid is in sixth grade, the chances that that child will graduate plummets. which means all of that is to say that we can know, we can identify and we can do something about the dropout track. and there's been a lot of good work after. many of the programs that terry reference, there are ways to prevent dropouts but there are ways to identify these kids early. there's a recent research paper out by donald hernandez i believe it is at hunter college that tracks, tracks graduation all the way back to third grade. if you're not reading proficiently i third grade your chances of graduation drops. if we know that we should
mentioned john stuart been normally, you can get a barometer of where the country is by the late-night comics. >> i thought you said comics. [laughter] >> i will let even get into the midst of that. >> but letterman is getting older and we will have a vacant chair at some point. [laughter] >> so what did jay leno say. >> they went from 8.3% to 8.1% and the reason was that three and 60,000 people dropped out of the work force entirely, stop looking for work, which is the only reason the numbers went down. nearly 400,000 people give up hope they could find work. so obama has a strategy for re- election which is encouraging even more people to stop looking for what. >> but the question is not whether the and employment rate is 8.1% or 8.3%. the question is whether it is better than when the president took office? >> absolutely not. when you have the worst employment participation in 30 years -- in the three and a half years of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average
into the way the court has decided. this case was a sensational trial and allegations about john walker was the district court judge trying to publicize it and getting shot down by the supreme court and a lot of questions as to the propriety of sitting on the case or how he managed the case and ultimately came down to no one's surprise. a very broad ruling finding basically same-sex marriage mandated by equal protection clause of the constitution. not merely that this one -- [talking over each other] >> you need not marry a member -- the state must under the equal protection clause allowing same-sex marriage but his ruling is very broad. not just california. if he is right every state cannot define their marriage as only between a man and a woman. ninth circuit took that case and came up with a more narrow ground. it looks to me it is all so uniquely tailored to appeal to justice kennedy. judge reinhardt wrote the 2-1 decision upholding it and basically says we are not even going to address whether this passes the rational basis for scrutiny as a matter of itself but once you have a sta
and aerospace engineering in the university of michigan. would you welcome general john mcfalls. [applause] >> i didn't know that part was happening because i had the easy part. it is an honor and privilege to introduce the keynote speaker today and for the company that jian-li was just talking about, the national security partners to be affiliated and co-sponsored with this very prestigious and influential organization, the potomac institute for policy studies. as the tagline states behind me we are difference makers. national security partners have been supporting many of the organizations that are represented in the room as a lot of of the audience here for several years. but today jamie said say something nice about dennis bartko, who was known and the team supported for five years or so, so let me go with that. as the nsa director special assistant for cyber, he leaves the cyber task force. when general alexander selected dennis, he obviously knew the same things that i am about to tell you because dennis started this organization way back in early 2007 and he still is a leader. as you prob
and the constitution, john relish both in south carolina. my middle name is rutledge. it is a dishonor to our ancestors to find out where we are in missouri right now. we deserve better leadership and i plan to get it. >> thank you. jim higgins. >> thank you. the libertarian party with, we turn 40 years old last year. i have been a libertarian for him is that of time. i first discovered libertarian ideas in the early 70s and i've been active in the party on and off ever since then. in missouri i worked on petitions to try and get the ballot access for the mystery party and 92 and we've had valid access ever since then. we've made progress, steady progress, slow, steady progress. not as much as we'd hoped, that people are starting to listen to our ideas. so, we have a platform, but we are 100% across-the-board freedom for the individual. we believe that the government should not try to control personal behavior. we are strong believers in the free market and the balance between demand and prices the best way to allocate the most resources to the most people. it is the hard and politicians improve on tha
